Visit Google Takeout. It’s a service by Google where you can download "all" your data of any Google service. Choose "Google+ Photos". This should contain all your uploaded images.

I did some experimenting, although I didn't actually delete the photos (since I want to keep them). But I was able to select them all. I'm using Chrome on Windows 7. Open "Instant Upload" under your Google+ Photos Hit the End key. Your browser window will scroll down to the bottom of what's currently displayed. Google+ will load up more photos. Hit End ...

I had the same problem as the OP: Google+ had uploaded 800MB of photos on my mobile without prompting me. Here is the solution I've found to delete whole album, which was not available in Google+ interface. Open https://picasaweb.google.com/home, there you'll see the instant upload photo album and the option to delete the whole album.

You can't tag in the auto backup album. When you tag someone you made the entire album visibile to the person tagged so G+ prevent you from trowing your privacy away. Put those photos in an album and then tag your friends ;)

You can but it is tedious.. I did the same thing but, luckily, I only had 1GB of space to claim back from G+ photos. I had them set to standard (<2048x) size on auto-upload but when they introduced full-size auto-uploads, it became the default setting and so a couple of my albums backed up at full size without me knowing. To change the size of the ...

To finish of the thread: According to Al Everett: In this answer you can find a way to select all photos in Instant Upload. Instead of Deleting them you can add them to an album and afterwards download the entire album.

While the help doesn't explicitly mention this case, the 'Sync to Web' basics page has the following: Once you've enabled the Sync to Web feature, you can sync the following changes from Picasa to Picasa Web Albums: Added or deleted photos So I would assume that if you delete a folder locally it would also get deleted on the web. My ...

A Google+ album can have just one sharing setting at a time. But you can choose and share only selected photos from that album, then the recipient can see only those images, not the whole album - as Google+ creates a new album for those shared photos. The rest stays private. You can also move / copy those selected photos to a new album with wider ...

I just discovered a more automated way with desktop Picasa. Open your Picasa From File menu, select Import from Google+ Wait until all your online albums are imported to local drive Go to Tools menu → Batch Upload In the bottom form, change the radio button to Change options, and change size to 2048 In the folder tree to the left, select all folders Click ...

Unfortunately it is not possible on personal profiles, for security and privacy reasons. On a business Page the appointed managers can all edit the photos in the Pages' albums. People can comment on the photos but that's all. More about Google+ Photos here.

Your best chance at this is to download the other person's photos and to re-upload them into your own space. You can then re-generate the story and hope it will pick up the new pictures.

Add a hash tag to the description (e.g., #Favourite). Then, in your Photos, just search for your hashtag and you should get your favorite photos.

Another possibility that comes to mind is to share a folder in Google Drive. Then both of you could turn on the Google+ Photos feature to display each such folder as an album. Then it's just a question of moving/copying your Auto-Backup'd photos to that album (folder). Google+ Help: View photos stored in your Google Drive Open Google+. Place your ...

I heard a rumor about shared photo albums being developed in the future, but can't find where I saw that. Staying in the Googleverse, the only thing I know of that will do something like this is Google+ Events. If you RSVP to an event and turn on the feature when the event comes up, then all the photos you take (until the end of the event) are uploaded to ...

I am trying a different strategy. Download all my Google+ pics via Google Takeout. This creates a bunch of zip files <=2GB in size. I uncompress them and then look at their size to find the large pictures that were uploaded at full resolution. I then use WinDirStat to visually quickly see which files are taking up space.

I was able to solve this by using If This Then That (thanks @Cawas) and the email upload feature of Picasaweb. Because Picasaweb albums are shared with Google+ this gives me what I want. Here's what you need: Turn on the email upload feature of Picasaweb Sign in to your account at http://picasaweb.google.com/. Click the gear gear icon icon in the ...
